My primary choice

During a recent presidential primary debate in the United States, each candidate stated reasons why one should vote for him or her and not the others. I certainly want to choose the candidate who will do the most good for the country. Isn’t that what you want, too? But how can we make the best choice?

I feel I do a better job voting, or making any decision, when I make one choice before all others: the choice about what I acknowledge as powerful. What is the power that truly governs the world?

Christ Jesus had no say in the government in his time, but he wasn’t powerless. He understood God, good, was the supreme power and that God made men and women capable of expressing that dominion in their own lives. He lived this truth by healing sickness and freeing people from sin and death, overcoming evil through an understanding of God, good. And he said, “I beheld Satan [evil, a false sense of power] as lightning fall from heaven” (Luke 10:18).
